Luke Chapter 7 tells us about the meeting of two great crowds of people. One group followed Jesus, filled with the anticipation of the coming Messianic Kingdom. The other followed a Widow in a funeral procession for her only son.
There were two crowds:
- One singing praises â the other weeping and wailing
- One overcome by joy â the other overcome by sorrow
- One filled hope and expectation â the other with despair and devastation
This was a meeting of life and death, of light and darkness.
Both groups learned some incredible things about Jesus that day. The lessons they learned are lessons that all followers of Jesus need. Jesus brings great hope to those who follow him.
